Your American Red Cross of Central Texas responded to a fire this morning in Elgin which destroyed a family home. Three adults along with ten family pets were displaced. Thankfully, there were no injuries. The Red Cross provided shelter and other essentials for the family who had lost their home. We were grateful to have Carole Leandra, volunteer extraordinaire, on the scene to help assess the family’s needs. Volunteers truly are the backbone of the Red Cross and we couldn’t do it without them!
